Gas-Powered Leaf Blower Ban

Please use only battery- or electric-powered leaf blowers in your yard. This prohibition and fine apply to homeowners as well as landscaping companies, so please ensure your contractors are aware of the prohibition.

The Town Council adopted a rebate program to assist residents in purchasing any battery- or electric-powered lawn equipment and batteries to defray the cost of complying with the gas-powered leaf blower ban. The rebate shall not exceed the total cost of the equipment, including tax, or $100, whichever is less. One qualifying purchase per year per household is permitted from July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2025. Any reimbursement is subject to approval and available funding. 

Please visit www.upmd.org/rebate to submit for reimbursement or call (301) 927-4262 ext. 102 if you have questions.
